A precise control of orientation and position of micro- and nano-particles is critical for their applications in micro- and nano-scale systems. This research is focused on a numerical investigation of controlling the cylindrical particle/road with transverse electric field in a pressure driven microchannel flow with Finite Element Method (FEM). The particle/rod is initially located at the channel centerline with different initial angles. The electrophoretic force and hydrodynamic force are combined to control particle/rod movement. It was found that pressure, applied voltage and initial angles have different impact on particles dynamic behavior.
